Thanks to all the incredible musicians above for lending me their talent and putting their own stamp on the record, but especially to Tom, Shane and Aoife for dedicating so much time & energy for nothing but the love of it.
Firstly, I must thank my gal Nadie for her unwavering support and understanding during the recording of this album. I love you and this album is for me and you. Secondly, I have to thank my folks Colm & Pauline who have always told me to do what makes me happy even when it may have seemed more sensible to do otherwise. I’m very lucky to have people like them looking out for me. Thirdly, I must thank Conor, Damo & John, my amigos from Your Arch Enemies and in particular my cousin Conor who introduced me to good music and made me want to make it. They gave me some of the most memorable moments of my life and their fingerprints can be heard on some of the tracks here.
Special thanks must also go to Ruth Kennington, Conor Brennan & Mark McGuigan for their expertise and instruments,to my close friends for their advice and encouragement, to Conor Wickham for being generous with his talent and last but definitely not least, to Steve Shannon for his guidance and all round wizardry and Sinead, Iarla, Maeve & Fred for their warmth & friendliness upon finding me in their back garden quite a lot!
